Phill Niblock, electronics Seth Josel, guitars with e-bow
Composer Phill Niblock presents the West Coast premiere of Sethwork, featuring guitarist Seth Josel and two simultaneously projected films by Niblock, whose music is most often accompanied by motion pictures of his own making. Using an e-bow, Josel, an American living in Germany, will create a series of overlaid sustained guitar pitches, filling the hall with a rich texture of sound projected through an array of sophisticated speakers, immersing the audience in an overpowering audio illusion. A long-time New Yorker, Niblock, 71, travels frequently to present his work abroad and has composed drone works for clarinet, tympani, tuba, and sousaphone, as well as combinations of two or more instruments.
